America, the Beautiful

A week removed from 9/11 and more than a week since the Annie's House weekend, but I still can't get the weekend out of my mind. I have decided to share all the pictures from the Annie's House project that were in the paper (that didn't get put on our website at www.ndna.com/bottineaucourant) and post them on here.

There will be a large amount of sports pictures as well as I covered five sports games/matches last week. Needless to say there will be a large amount of photos for readers to enjoy this week.

In other news, I rose to 1-1 in my Bottineau fantasy football league, but fell to 0-2 in my MN/ND/KS league. It's early, so I haven't lost faith quite yet.

Anyway, many pictures to write cut lines for, so I'll stop babbling.
